Saying “Hello” to Something for Baby

Isn’t this card “just ducky?”  I used Something for Baby and Something to Say (“congratulations”) stamp sets, both new in the Stampin’ Up! 2014-2015 Annual Catalog.  MARK YOUR CALENDAR!  They will be available for purchase on June 2 at NOON Mountain when the catalog officially begins.


  • The sweet duck and trio of flowers were inked in Hello, Honey (a new 2014-2016 In Color).  Both were cropped with precision using the Baby’s First Framelits Dies.

  • Did you notice the paper-piercing around the duck and on his wing?  Stampin’ Up! will be offering Eclectic Paper Piercing Templates (a set of 3) that include the duck and many other shapes that line up with Stampin’ Up! punches and framelits dies.

  • I used Stampin’ Up! Squares Collection Framelits Dies to crop the center of the 4 3/4″ square card base (Lost Lagoon Cardstock, a new 2014-2016 In Color).
  • The wavy Lost Lagoon pattern peeking from behind is a SNEAK PEEK of Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack.

  1. Hi Lora . . . there is no color in them. You are seeing what everyone else is seeing. The chart is intended to hold pieces of card stock that you crop and adhere for each color. Its a handy way to have a true color sample as well as match up scraps for organization 🙂 Hugs, M

  2. Mary, I have tried it again to get to the PDF and the little squares are totally blank no color what so ever. There for can’t cut out the little samples. Why can’t I see them?

  3. Most precious card for a precious grand-child. I like plain and still gorgeous.

    Adorable – the piercing really makes this sweet little duckling stand out…and love the Hello Honey flowers as well. The background paper you chose is fabulous!

  5. Sweet! I love the new Lost Lagoon color! pairs so sweet with your little duckie : )


  6. Mary! This is so cool! Love it! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Love the card Mary. I’m surprised to read in the above comment that your choice of DSP wasn’t intentional. You’re amazing even when you’re not trying!!!

  8. I didnt even catch the duck/water connection, Cindy. Thanks for the second set of eyes!

  9. Oh my gosh! Too adorable! I love how you chose that fabulous DSP that looks like water when paired with the little ducky. Gorgeous design, too!

  10. Darling card Mary! Something about a single duck that makes an impact on a card. LOVE IT!

  11. I LOVE this card, Mary! Off to pin it for CASE-ing later….. 🙂

  12. Wicked cute is so much more hip . . . Ill have to remember that for Halloween!

  13. I adore having you as a member of the Pals, Michelle. So glad you are diggin it 🙂

  14. Mary, I absolutely love this card! Clean, simple, and adorable. Have I told you lately how much I adore being a Pal?

  15. This is such a fantastic card Mary. I love the cut out square idea for a card. Thanks for sharing.

  16. I want to be corny and say that your card is “just ducky!” but it really is, as we say here in Maine, “wicked cute.” : )
